The quiet town of Loum in Umunze, Anambra State was thrown into confusion after naked corpses of two ladies were discovered lying by the expressway way after the Federal Government College of Education, Technical in the area.
Sheer panic griped residents after it was discovered that some parts of the bodies had also been harvested in what looked like a ritual crime.
The yet-to-be-identified ladies also had their tongues cut off, and looked freshly killed, WuzupNaija writes.
After the police were invited to evacuate their bodies, the State’s Police Public Relations Officer, SP Haruna Mohammed, said the ladies may have taken a poisonous substance before they were brutally killed.
“We took the bodies to General Hospital, Umunze. An autopsy revealed that the bodies appeared to have ingested some poisonous substance.”
Mr Haruna said an investigation has been launched to unravel the heinous crime.
